1. Why should we feed rabbit pellets?
Pellet feed is the most common and very healthy choice for feeding rabbits. Feeding rabbits with pellet feed has many benefits. In addition, during the pressing process of healthy pellets, the starch in the mixed powder is gelatinized, which increases the flavor and palatability of the feed. To a certain extent, it stimulates the appetite of pet rabbits, and the pellet feed can also promote the rabbit's gastrointestinal digestion and make the pet rabbit's diet healthier.
Pellet feed has a certain degree of hardness. This feed is not as soft as wet mix powder, and it is suitable for rabbits' habit of chewing on hard objects and molar teeth. At the same time, it also achieves the role of protecting rabbits' oral health to a certain extent. Prepare pellet feed for pet rabbits. In daily life, farmers who raise rabbits do not need to prepare wooden blocks or branches for rabbits to chew and grind their teeth.
The professional rabbit pellet feeds on the market are made by mixing and pressing various feed ingredients, with comprehensive and sufficient nutrients. It also avoids the phenomenon of unbalanced nutrition intake caused by picky eaters in rabbits. At the same time, the digestibility of the feed is improved. Pet rabbits eat pellets for a longer time to chew, which can promote the secretion of amylase in the mouth, so that the feed in the mouth is fully mixed with saliva, stimulates the peristalsis of the intestine, and greatly improves the feed. The digestibility of nutrients. The use of pellet feed, especially fine pellet feed, can increase the feed utilization rate by 25.7% to 33.2%; pellet feed supplementation for young rabbits is significantly better than powder feed, and the weight gain of litter, individual weight and feed conversion rate can be significantly improved (10%- 20%), promote the growth of young rabbits, and avoid feed waste and nutritional imbalance caused by powder.
Moreover, pellet feed is professionally suppressed, and through the comprehensive action of short-term high temperature and high pressure, not only the starch in the feed is gelatinized and protein is organized, but also the enzyme activity is enhanced, which makes the beans contained in the feed and some obstacles in the grain field. The digestion and utilization of nutrients are inactivated, which improves the digestibility of rabbit feed.
There are indeed many benefits of feeding pellets to pet rabbits, and it saves a lot of trouble and difficulty in feeding for the host. Moreover, experts have determined that eating pellets for pet rabbits reduces the waste of feed caused by picky eaters or picking up feeds when eating wet mixed powder, and feeding pellets can save 15% of the rabbit feed.

When raising rabbits in rural households, powdered materials can still be used, but they must be mixed. Dry powder feed has the following disadvantages:
(1) Due to the different physical properties of various feed ingredients, dry powder feed will cause classification during transportation and storage, which will reduce the uniformity of feed.
(2) When feeding the dry powder feed to the rabbit, it must be mixed with a small amount of water, because the rabbit's nose is easy to inhale the dry powder feed in the process of feeding the dry powder feed, causing foreign body pneumonia.
